Edgewater Networks is debuting an SD-WAN offering targeted for small to medium-sized enterprises, available via channel partners, optimized for the BroadSoft BroadWorks and BroadCloud platforms.
Edgewater Networks SD-WAN service will offer stateful SIP transfer of VoIP calls across two WAN links, URL-, port- and IP address-prioritized routing for all real and non-real time traffic across the links, and identification and management of LAN-based devices. It’s also provisioned through the EdgeView Service Control Center without any need for configuration by the end user.
“As a new component of our Network Edge Orchestration platform, Edgewater Networks SD-WAN service allows BroadSoft customers to offer comprehensive end-user service level agreements by ensuring that real-time communications are automatically routed to the best available internet connection,” said Chris Kolstad, Edgewater Networks vice president of product management. “Edgewater Networks’ SD-WAN offers a new revenue stream to service providers with a solution that is designed for SMEs who have limited IT resources to configure, manage and monitor an SD-WAN platform.”
The SD-WAN service is available to anyone using Edgewater Networks’ Network Edge Orchestration platform and can also be purchased as part of the Cloud2Edge Complete service model. The EdgeMarc Intelligent Edges, used for security and service assurance for unified communications as-a-service (UCaaS), are the customer premises component of the SD-WAN solution–no additional hardware is needed.
“By leveraging BroadSoft Business cloud unified communications, team collaboration and contact center solutions, Edgewater Networks has demonstrated its commitment to reinventing how people work,” said Taher Behbehani, chief digital and marketing officer at BroadSoft. “We’re thrilled to welcome the Edgewater Networks’ SD-WAN solution into our growing user environment.”
